What made you go into modelling?
I thought it would be a good way to make contacts in the creative world, since starting I have had the opportunity to talk to photographers and journalists which has been great for my interests in both areas.
What does the word ' influencer' mean to you?
Well someone could be a negative or a positive influencer. For me, a positive influencer is someone who uses their a public platform to inform, inspire and encourage others to strive for the improvement of the aspects of society which still have room for growth; such as gender and race equality. Whatever the medium, as an influencer you have an obligation to convey a message about the power of intellect and solidarity between human beings, rather simply focusing on an aesthetic image.
What music are you listening to right now?
Now that I have record player up and running in Brighton, I have been listening to a David Bowie live stage record that my grandmother gave me for Christmas.
Top tips on staying healthy this year?
Drink water, constantly. And find a form of exercise that you love and that you can improve at.
Travel plans for this year?
I am finishing university in May so am planning on going on tour with my dad for a bit in the U.S. My boyfriend and I also want to travel Japan together so hopefully we will get that sorted soon. I hate being in the same place for too long so I feel like travelling is my lifeblood! All I want to do is travel the world, take pictures and write about it!
What are your top beauty tips?
I use a Kiehls skin regime for my face but I moisturise with natural grapeseed oil. Other than that, just drink lots of water.
What festivals are you going to this year?
I am definitely going to Glastonbury but other than that I feel like I could forego the others. I would rather go away somewhere.
What trainers are you into at the moment?
I am cultivating an unhealthy obsession for Reeboks at the moment. They just keep bringing out the good collaborations and new styles. My favourite new pair are the Alife x Reebok phase 1 Pro. The problem is I wear them all too often so they don't stay fresh for very long.
What brand do you think is going to be big this year?
Bluebella! They are a lingerie company who make great styles that are comfortable and affordable. The pieces are designed by women, for women and encourage the idea of buying lingerie for yourself, not just for your partner. Also, my friends Jana Sasha Haveman and Laura Castro Poorta's brand, Vali. Their bohemian designs are heavily influenced by their Ibizan backgrounds and have a really authentic vintage feel to them. They make incredibly beautiful and some very dramatic dresses.
